When my sister was here in Budapest, I wanted to show her more of Hungary than just the capital. We were planning an outing to Lake Balaton in her second week, but because the weather cooled, we skipped that. Instead, we went to Esztergom, a city north of Budapest.
And not just any city: one of the oldest cities in Hungary (even the former capital!), the location of the biggest church in the country, and you can just walk across a bridge to Slovakia! Esztergom plays an important part in Hungary’s history, and as a Hungary-fan, you can’t skip a (short) visit.
